In year 1 we have been doing some super measuring! We have done various activities, including measuring things against a wild things paw to see what was bigger, smaller and the same size. We have been measuring the length of different objects using multilink cubes. Mrs Schofield and Mrs Georgieva also recorded our heights on our flower height chart. We have also been doing the tricky job of measuring with a ruler. We know we measure length in centimetres and metres! We really are marvellous measurers!!!
This term we will be learning about Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and his adventures. The author of the Sir Charlie books is Kristina Stephenson. Kristina is a friend of The Ferns and we are going to be connecting with her via Twitter. Do you have a question for Kristina? Write your questions below for Kristina to answer.
We are going to make a word wall in our topic lesson next week of everything we already know about Australia. Please add any words you can think of . Also, think about what you would like to find out about Australia.
This half term our learning will centre around The Gingerbread Man. To introduce the learning we have planned an exciting Big Bang for the pupils! The children will be given the opportunity to bake and decorate their own gingerbread man and we will also visit a local bakery to buy our own. We can’t wait to share photographs of this!
Today, our school received a defibrillator from The Oliver King Foundation. A number of staff have been trained to use the equipment and we are extremely proud to be of the first schools in the North West to receive one, through this fantastic foundation.
Today, our new Govenor, PC Goddard came to visit The Ferns. Firstly, he did an assembly for our KS2 children in the hall. After that, some year groups got to go and have a look inside the police car! He will be coming back to see KS1 very soon!
